Drilled stripped screw in MacBook Pro with no success


I was trying to install a second hard drive in my macbook pro. The screw that holds the superdrive and the area with the airport and bluetooth connections that run to the monitor was stripped. I tried using a flathead, torx and every other sharp tool at my disposal to no avail. Someone at the apple store told me to use a dremel to remove the screw. I tried that and just ended up drilling the head of the screw off. I am not sure what to do now to remove the screw, let alone repair the area, as I know the apple store wont fix it.

Any ideas?

If the head of the screw is gone, the drive should just lift off over the shaft. You can then use a pair of needle nosed pliers to grasp and turn the shaft to get it out.

Agreed. Afterall, it's the same thing I'm going to do with my troubles when the "Dremel dude" gets back. This comment is to give you a +1, and remember that, if this really effective suggestion doesn't work, and it going to work, it's always possible using a drill with the smallest point availble and drill the center of the screw, that then will become frail and break under the nose pliers.
